Stimulus plans differ on health spending

Wall Street Journal (subscription required), January 26, 2009
Proposed spending in the U.S. Senate's stimulus package includes $3 billion more for health information technology than that proposed by the U.S. House, according to a summary released by the Senate Appropriations Committee. The summary includes $5 billion for health information technology, which comes on top of roughly $18 billion in the Senate Finance Committee's portion of the bill for health technology. The House stimulus package includes only $20 billion for health information technology.
